Draft Water Resources Management Plan 2019

Planning water resources is a long-term business. That’s why we look ahead 60 years to understand how much water will be available and how much we will need to supply.

Every five years we develop a Water Resources Management Plan that sets out how we plan to provide secure, reliable water supplies for our customers now and in the future.

It considers how the world around us is changing and plans for population growth, climate change and to protect the local environment.

We launched a public consultion on our draft Water Resources Management Plan on 5 March 2018 and you can share your views by filling out our online questionnaire and submitting it by 25 May 2018. Or complete our printable version and send it to Defra directly (details on the form). 

You can read our consultation document below. Our technical report and supporting information is available to download using the links to the right.
